I told you about a banana soft serve recipe that would be life changing, and many of you have written in saying that it is--hands down--the most amazing thing you have made in a long time. Now, I bring you the breakfast cookie that might just have the same effect.
I've told you about Gina, the fabulous fitness guru behind the blog Fitnessista, a blog I love and check in on all the time for healthy eating inspiration. Well, I have to tell you about her recipe for no-bake breakfast cookies.
Gina's Amazing Breakfast Cookie
Recipe adapted for Vitamin G, courtesy of Fitnessista from Glamour.com
Ingredients:
1/3 cup oats
1 tablespoon of nut butter (almond, peanut, whatever--pick your fave!)
A sprinkling of protein powder such as Designer Whey (note: this is optional)
1/8 cup of soy milk or milk (or almond milk or whatever you like)
1/2 cup of optional add ins (ideas: mashed bananas, canned pumpkin, apple sauce)
1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
Optional: A sprinkling of something sweet, like a little sugar, agave or honey (Gina uses stevia)
Preparation:
Mix all ingredients together, then put the "dough" on a plate and form into a flat, round shape. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. It will harden slightly from the nut butter and the oats will soften from the milk. In the morning, grab a spoon and enjoy!
Enjoy!
